Have mine on the stove now! I skipped the cream because we don't need it and I didn't have it. I reduced the stock to compensate. I am sure the other is better though. I also used some fresh sage with the thyme.
I think stirring in some plain yogurt or sour cream would give it that small bit of dairy that smooths out the flavor.
